south side road trip

A group of photography enthusiasts took a long ride to the south to venture and explore landscape photography.
The ride to the south was primarily intended to remember, gave thanks and pay tribute to the teachings of a great photography mentor. We ventured out to the south side of the city since this was our mentors usual routine every time he has a photography workshop with his class. We stopped at the usual spots where he takes his students and try out different genres of photography.
Although I have not met the great mentor himself, nor have I been in one of his classes, hearing from the words of my companions, I would say he was indeed a great mentor and a good friend.
We started out shooting churches, working our ways to learn landscape photography. We moved from one church to another and more often than not, most churches had wedding ceremonies on that same day. That also gave us the opportunity to try Wedding photography. Later the day, we stopped by at a local restaurant to take a breather and talked a little more about our mentor. After the quick collaboration, we then tried portrait photography. Thanks to the girls who was with the group and was willing enough to pose for us.
All in all, it was a great learning experience. Needless to say, I am already looking forward to the next group activity.
